How to open ERS files

Did your computer fail to open an ERS file? We explain what ERS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is an ERS file?

We know of 2 different uses of the ERS file type, one of them being Earth Resource Mapping Raster. Read the details below.

The ERS file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ERS opener may not be able to open all kinds of ERS files. In this case, look through both formats to make sure you find the best suited ERS viewer.

Earth Resource Mapping Raster

These ERS files contain the images and metadata used in ER Mapper Raster, a Earth resource mapping software. The ERS files are used by the oil, gas, and mineral industries to exploit satellite and aerial images of resource locations.
